After a Subway breakfast sandwich, we drove over to the local Chevrolet dealership and had the oil/filter changed in the Roadtrek. Back on the road, we drove through Colby, WI, home of Colby cheese? Wisconsin is known as America's dairyland, and we certainly saw MANY dairies along our route. We also saw miles and miles of cornfields and soybean fields. We stopped at Phillips Cafe in Phillips, WI, for lunch. This 1940s-style cafe displayed mounted animals and a fish. Local residents were busily discussing politics while they had lunch in their midwestern-accented voices. As we drove through Park Falls, WI, we saw a sign that bragged that the town was the Ruffled Grouse Capital of the World. Continuing our trip, we saw many spruce pines and Aspen trees. More road construction. We rode around the town of Ashland, getting our first glimpses of the huge Lake Superior. From Ashland, we rode on up to Red Cliff, home of the Red Cliff Band of the Chippewa of Lake Superior. We had hoped to camp at the RV park of the local casino (Legendary Waters), but the site was very small and dusty. So, we drove on to Bayfield and found the Apostle Islands Area Campground where we decided to camp for two nights.
